Industry Moves: Roeding Joins Kleiner Perkins as EIR

Cyriac Roeding, the former EVP of mobile at CBS (NYSE: CBS), who has been documenting his just concluded mobile world tour for us, has joined Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the venture firm, as an entrepreneur-in-residence. Which means he will be looking to start a new company funded by KPCB..he will be working with Matt Murphy, the iFund partner at KPCB. iFund is the $100 million iPhone and iPod touch focused development fund. Recently, the fund has invested in five iPhone start-ups:Pelago, the parent of mobile location-based service Whrrl, received an investment from KPCB before the iFund was created, and then was transferred over. The next three were: iControl, a company that enables users to monitor homes while away, and Gogii and Ngmoco, two mobile game companies. A fifth unnamed investment is expected to be announced soon…

He is starting there by mid this month, and has moved from Los Angeles to the Bay Area.
